Soon after we moved to our factory at the Egelstraat in Eindhoven, a former concrete factory, we realised that an inspiring ambience would aid our team in its operation and offer a professional impression to our visitors. So we reached out to interior designers Gerrit Vos and Toine Pennings of Workshop of Wonders in Utrecht. During his days as acoustic consultant, Eelco Grimm teamed up with them to design the Big Orange studios in Amsterdam, HKU Music & Technology studios in Utrecht, and a few other projects.
We call Grimm Audio a ‘High-tech boutique’. We are relatively small, as a boutique company, but we manufacture highly sophisticated equipment, which most boutique companies don’t. The interior design could perhaps emphasize this vision. We told Gerrit and Toine that we were looking for an atmosphere with modern hints, but ‘timeless’ at the same time. If it would have an industrial look, it is because we are an industrial company, not because it is fashionable. We had limited resources at the time, so we would have to build it gradually, bit by bit.
Recently we realised quite a few elements of the Workshop of Wonders design, so we thought it was time to share some of the results with you and introduce our factory in the slideshow below. This is where the magic is made.
